Let’s now see the results from DiskSpeed32, which measures performance on a different way, sequentially reading all sectors from the storage device.
First, let’s take a look at the burst transfer rate results. This result shows the maximum transfer rate between the SATA port on the motherboard and the controller inside the SSD.
Here Patriot Torqx was the fastest drive, closely followed by Kingston V+ Series. It was 6% faster than OCZ Vertex, 11% faster than Mushkin Io and 84% faster than Intel X25-M.
But the most import result is the average transfer rate. Here the winner was Intel X25-M, closely followed by Patriot Torqx. The unit from Intel was 7% faster than Mushkin Io, 8% faster than Kingston V+ Series and 11% faster than OCZ Vertex.
On the maximum transfer rate results, Intel X25-M was onc
e the fastest SSD, being 14% faster than Kingston V+ Series, 18% faster than Mushkin Io, 19% faster than Patriot Torqx and 27% faster than OCZ Vertex.
On the minimum transfer rate results, Intel X25-M achieved the worst result, with the other drives being between 54% and 67% faster. Patriot Torqx, Mushkin Io and Kingston V+ Series achieved a similar performance, with OCZ Vertex being 6% faster than these drives, on average.
